Tuition Assistance

WMA’s Board of Trustees is committed to ensuring access to Westrick Music Academy’s
musical education programs regardless of a family’s financial circumstance. We are sincerely grateful to its individual donors and foundation funding
partners who provide critical support for tuition assistance.

Tuition assistance is entirely need-based. As part of the registration process, choristers
who are invited to join one of Westrick’s choirs will be sent a registration form. On the
registration form, there is a separate link to a tuition assistance application form for
those families seeking aid. Each application for tuition assistance is evaluated using
Westrick Music Academy’s sliding scale model (see below):

2024-2025 Westrick Music Academy Sliding Scale Tuition Assistance Model

This model aims to be objective and equitable, seekin go ensure that access to Westrick Music Academy’s finite tuition assistance funds is prioritized to those families most in need.

If a family qualifies for tuition assistance, their chorister’s Registration Fee will be
refunded upon tuition assistance award, and the family will receive two complimentury tickets to every performance produced by WMA.

Awards are subject to the availability of funding.

Tuition Assistance Application Process

1. On each chorister’s Registration Form, there is a link to apply for tuition assistance.
Clicking on the link will open a Tuition Assistance Form. Note: Families with multiple
choristers must apply for each chorister individually.

2. The Tuition Assistance Form will gather basic family data including household size
and will require families to upload all pages of current Federal Income Tax Return
(Form 1040, 1040-A, or 1040-EZ). If families have not yet filed a current Federal
Income Tax Return, they will be required to provide the most recent Federal Income
Tax Return or 1099 form.

3. The Tuition Assistance form also requires families to complete a narrative to support
the tuition assistance request.

4. Once the Tuition Assistance Form is submitted, families will be required to schedule
a conversation with Westrick Music Academy’s Executive Director prior to any award

5. Families will receive a formal accept/defer letter for every applicant based on the
objective sliding scale criteria, and for accept letters defining the precise award

Tuition assistance may only be applied towards tuition costs and does not cover any
additional school fees with the exception of the chorister’s registration fee which will be
refunded upon tuition assistance award.
